Nesem vám noviny poslouchejte, Z Betlemské Krajiny, pozor dejte. Slyste je pilne a neomylne, Slyste je pilne a neomylne, Rozjímejte. Syna porodila cistá pana, V jeslicky vlozila Krista Pána; Jej ovinula a zavinula, Jej ovinula a zavinula, Plencickama. Tr. Karl Riedel, 1827-1888 Kommet, ihr Hirten, Ihr Männer und Fraun! Kommet, das liebliche Kindlein zu schaun! Christus, der Herr, Ist heute geboren, Den Gott zum Heiland Euch hat erkoren. |: Fürchtet euch nicht! :|

Lasset uns sehen In Bethlehems Stall, Was uns verheißen Der himmlische Schall! Was wir dort finden, Lasset uns künden, Lasset uns preisen In frommen Weisen. |: Allelujah! :|

Wahrlich, die Engel Verkündigen heut Bethlehems Hirtenvolk Gar große Freud: Nun soll es werden Frieden auf Erden, Den Menschen allen Ein Wohlgefallen. |: Ehre sei Gott! :|

Come, O you shepherds, people, listen to me.
Go straight to Bethlehem, the baby to see.
For Christ is born a man now among you,
God come from heaven now here to save you:
Be not afraid!

Let us go swiftly to Bethlehem's stall,
There to adore the gift revealed to us all.
What here we find we'll tell all mankind;
Give adoration, come, every nation:

Truly the angel good news has revealed
To Bethlehem's shepherds as before him they kneeled.
Now joy on earth to all men is here;
Peace among all banishes fear.
Praise be to God!
